Using Zendesk with SurveyMonkey

You can use SurveyMonkey and Zendesk together to trigger instant feedback with SurveyMonkey customer satisfaction surveys, or to create and send a survey to a specific group of customers.

Get Started! Visit the Zendesk help center to for help setting up the integration.

To send a SurveyMonkey survey to Zendesk customers when their ticket has been marked as Solved:

  1. In SurveyMonkey, create a customer satisfaction survey or use one of our pre-written templates.
  2. Create a web link collector. This will generate a survey link that you can include in your Zendesk notification email to customers.
  3. Log into Zendesk. Click the Admin icon in the left navigation bar.
  4. Under BUSINESS RULES click Triggers.
  5. Next to "Notify requester of solved request", click edit.
  6. Configure the conditions under which you would like the notification to be sent to customers.
  7. In the "Perform these actions:" section, you can customize the body of the email that will be sent to customers when the above conditions are met. Paste your SurveyMonkey web link URL into the Email body and customize the message to meet your needs.

TIP: Use Zendesk's placeholders to append Custom Variables to the end of your survey link. This will allow you to pass data about the respondent from Zendesk into their SurveyMonkey response.

Within the SurveyMonkey Create app in Zendesk, you can:

  • Select a list of customers from Zendesk to survey based on filters you define
  • Select an existing survey, or a template
  • Send your composed survey from within your Zendesk
